Upon course completion, a student will be able to:
- Describe the engineering design procedures.
- Apply the principles of engineering graphics to create engineering sketches.
- Design and assemble a machine or a structure to perform a specific task in a team effort.
- Apply the basic laws of physics to the design project.
- Translate the design equation into a computer spreadsheet (Excel) and perform a graphic analysis.
- Select the most cost effective design solution which can be completed within the time constraint.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the operation of a parametric computer-aided design system (Pro/Engineer) and use it to create parts. assemblies, and drawings.
- Prepare a design report using a word processor (Word) and present the design project using a presentation tool (PowerPoint).
